Young actor Zohaib Siddique, who is currently portraying the character of Rahu in Siddharth Kumar Tewary's successful show Karamphal Data Shani, is enjoying his work and feels that every day is a learning experience for him.
Zohaib is a mechanical engineer and also worked in a corporate company for a year. After that, he decided to start his career in acting. He says,"My father is a scientist and am a mechanical engineer from Pune university. I always had an inclination towards acting and with that dream, I came to Mumbai and my first show was CID."
Post CID, he has worked in shows like Sadda Haq, Shapath, Sapne Suhane Ladakpan Ke. With Swastik Production, he has done a cameo in Suryaputra Karn as Kichak. How much can he relate to Rahu? "After I started working in the show, I got to know a lot about destiny, Rahu and Shani. Honestly, this show made me think a lot."
Speaking about his co-stars in the show, Zohaib says, "With Kunal Bakshi, we have done a show before. We shared screen in Swastik's Suryaputra Karn as well. Kartikey is a wonder child, he is an experienced actor and at this age, he comes across as a very confident and comfortable actor. With Salil Ankola, this is my first show and I used to watch his matches when he used to play cricket. I have never thought that one day I will share the screen with him. I wish to seek advice from him regarding fitness as he is a very fit guy."
Zohaib wears lenses in the show and he has worked a bit on the look to convince audience. He adds,"Siddharth Kumar Tewary and I sat together and asked for my inputs and also, he gave a lot of pointers and the final look is a culmination of all the inputs shared by him and me."
Speaking on his work experience so far, Zohaib says, "Everyday is a learning experience on the sets of Karmphal Data Shani, and since day one, I have become more comfortable."
